Features and remarks

Not with a brush, but with "dry paint" Manfred Peckl, the Austrian-born multi-artist, paints his pictures. Here you have the opportunity to purchase one of his fantastic collage works.

Peckel cuts posters, maps and posters into thin strips and then uses these as the basic building blocks of his pictures. One can imagine his works as a mosaic of paper, which he assembles from countless strips, some of which he shapes by hand.

The landscape presented here is entitled "Useless Knowledge". The night-blue undulating sea seems to be covered by a melting sky bathed in bright colours. "Everything is in flux", one could say, and so the title also makes sense: if everything is in motion, why not simply enjoy it instead of dissecting and rationalising what will be different again tomorrow?

In his collage, Peckl presents not so much a programme or a real landscape but a mood and a space of association.

„Colour is a central theme in these recent landscapes. I use dry paper to create liquid, changing physical states, new worlds of beauty and destruction filled with rolling waves and rays of light.“
